Itinerary

Arrival in Strasbourg and an opportunity for individual free sightseeing. Get to know the Gothic cathedral and the historic centre, which has been declared a World Heritage Site.

From Strasbourg, you cross the magnificent "Jardin des Deux Rives" and reach Kehl, where your route begins on the German bank of the Rhine. An easy and completely flat stage where you can discover the Rhine forest and the pretty villages along the Rhine.

Pleasant cycle paths took you through charming villages to Riegel and Emmendigen. A few more kilometres through the Landwasser forest and you will reach the city of Freiburg, capital of the Breisgau region. From the top of the Schlossberg you can watch the sunset over the roofs of the city and enjoy a beautiful panorama of the Vosges Mountains.

Take the "Breisgau Cycle Path" to the border town of Breisach. You can admire the cathedral, the town centre and the picturesque streets. On the French side, immerse yourself in the history of the 17th and 18th centuries by visiting Neuf-Brisach, the stronghold of Vauban, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Finally, you will reach Colmar, the capital of Alsatian wines. Be sure to stroll through the excellently preserved old town and visit the Unterlinden Museum, which houses the Issenheim Altar, a masterpiece of Western art.

After a last walk through the medieval streets, you leave Colmar for the vineyards. During the day, you will discover beautiful villages: Eguisheim, Turckheim, Kaysersberg and Riquewihr. These pearls of the wine route bask among the vineyards of the Grands Crus of Alsace.

Today, there are still some very pretty villages and a route that winds between the Vosges and the vineyards, on a gentle cycle path far from any traffic to take full advantage of the exceptional panorama. You will pass through Hunawihr, Ribeauville and Bergheim, recently voted "Village préféré des Francais", before arriving in Andlau, Barr or Obernai

In Rosheim, discover the church of Saints-Pierre-et-Paul, one of the jewels of Alsatian Romanesque architecture. In Molsheim, you will come across the Bruche Canal cycle path, which will take you to the heart of Strasbourg. The reunion with the European capital, its art of living and gastronomy will round off your stay in style.

Tour character

A slight-challenging bike tour. You cycle mostly on bike paths and sometimes on side streets with less traffic. Two stages are a little bit hilly.

Nice trip in beautiful landscape
Lots of very nice small villages and beautiful landscape on both sides of the river Rhine. On the french side all tracks were paved very nicely. If we have one small complaint is that the green signs were easy to miss sometimes (not very legible). A few more wouldn’t go amiss especially in some towns. We didn’t get lost very often but had to consult our cellular phones for directions at times. All hotels were comfortable, clean, welcoming and easy to find. Over all a very nice trip!

Gemütliche Radtour durch romantische Weinorte und beeindruckende Städte
Die Highlights dieser Tour waren die Städte Colmar und Strasburg und ganz besonders die Fahrt durch die Weinberge im Elsass mit den malerischen Orten. Alles dreht sich hier um Wein, wir waren während der Lesezeit unterwegs, da riecht und schmeckt man den Wein und die Trauben überall. Die schönen Weinorte sind mit vielen Tagestouristen manchmal überlaufen, da ist es schön am Abend bei gutem Essen und Wein diese Dörfer oder Städtchen zu erleben.
